Authentic and rare, young Boy’s Silk Kimono vest, depicting the Seven Gods of Luck and Good Fortune travelling in a ship called Takarabune which is filled with treasures and comes from sea to bring fortune and prosperity to everyone. This children’s garment exemplifies the typical boy’s school uniform of the early twentieth century. The art of painting silk or other clothing is believed to bring nature’s beauty, wisdom, strength, good luck, and prosperity into people’s lives. This Kimono vest is a piece of art in itself.
